Question about 2004 Buick Century

3 Answers

Both headlights stopped working.

Headlights will not work with either the sensor or switch. Fuses are intact. All other lights work. Problem came up overnight - they worked yesterday.

    I have not been able to find the relay - it is not in the fuse box. Believe it or not I hadn't thought to check the hi beams. I just did and they work. Crazy thing is, after turning the hi beams on and off, the low beams came on. They seem to work now. I feel pretty silly! thanks for the suggestion though.

    Acting on a suggestion by countrysi248 (I don't know if he is one of your experts) I tried the hi beams. After turning them on and off, the low beams started working again. Go figure...... It may not be a long term fix, but they are working now. Problem solved.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

My compliments, as you stated at least for now the low beam also works. If and when problem resurrects itself, might I add a possibility you may want to consider/explore? Loose ground of the headlights, Either the connector leading to the lights or a ground terminal.

Good luck and thank you for sharing the information.

Try the connectors, probably the one closest to the main light switch....You may find that the multi plug and socket have become effected by oxidisation, or they may have become loose....You can check with a test lamp or a voltage test meter...

1998 Lumina lights don't work at night!The lights work during the day but not at night. Does anyone know how to fix it?


Theres a sensor in the middle of the dash by the front windshield that detects sunlight and triggers the automatic headlights. The main headlights and daytime running lights might be on a different circuit, in which case they daytime running lamps would turn off at night and the main headlights would turn on, indicating the main headlights arent working and the daytime running lamps are working as intended.

I would check all the fuses related to headlights, check the bulbs and check the switch, then last the light sensor on the dash.

Dash and tail lights stopped working on my daughters 1991 toyota celica gt. the fuse has been checked and replaced. it was ok. the headlights were recently changed. is it true the dash and tail lights run...


If the tail lights and the dash lights stopped working and the tail light and the panel lighting fuses are both o.k. and you can find no other blown fuses then the problem is most likely the headlight switch.

Headlights stopped working.


No high and no low beams ? sounds like you need a new relay . check your relay box under the hood. look under the lid of the box and it will tell you which one is for the headlights.

Dashlights and temperature dash lights not working


Turn on your headlights and check to see if your taillights are working. They act as a fuse to your dashlights, its a safety thing
